I love this site and all the informative threads!!! I'm 33, 5'8", 204lbs. I work out 3 times/week. I've just started eating (mainly eating) vegitarian. Right now, here's my diet:

1. a shake with the following: I tabelspoon (10g) of Cinnamon, Goji berry, Bee Pollen, Kelp, Hemp, Chlorella, Spirulina, Turmeric, and Milled Flax Seed....and 1 cup Almond Milk and 1 medium Banana

2. 1 oz Whole Cashews

3. 2 oz Whole Wheat Pasta, .4 cup Avacado, Mixed Greens

4. Vegitable soup with some beans

5. 1/4 cup Sunflower Seeds

I think I'm around 1,600 calories. On workout days, I up the calories by about 300-400.
Today, I consumed 2 of my shakes, 2 whole eggs, one banana, 1/4 cup Sunflower seeds, 2 cups lental/bean soup, and I might eat quinoa and beans for dinner.

Any suggestions for a newbie?

You're off to a great start it looks like. I like the book "It must have been something I ate by Peggy Kotsopoulos. It has a lot of good recipes and great information about what foods are most important for getting which nutrients and why. Also Robert Cheeke's book vegan bodybuilding and fitness also has some quality recipes and eating tips.

Oh I almost forgot. If you haven't seen the documentary Forks over Knives definitely watch it, its amazing. If you have there is a book that accompanies the film that is full of recipes.
